Grand Designs Level II motor home is on the market for £750k – but there’s an appeal

This stunning and unusual property was built on Grand Designs in 2011, but it was left unfinished after the owners ran out of time and money to complete the construction. The four-bedroom home also comes with nearly four acres of land

A spectacular Grade II listed formerly silver mine engine mill has been featured on Grand Designs being marketed for £750,000 – but there’s still a hitch.

This detached four-bedroom home sits on 3.7 acres of land – which new buyers will own.

It appeared in a home renovation exhibition fronted by Kevin McCloud in 2011, but the previous owners never completed construction.

So new buyers will need to roll up their sleeves and pick up the loose ends.

When the house appeared on Channel 4, it was owned by stonemason Adam Purchase and his wife Nicola Brennan.

They have 12 months to complete the renovation but have only borrowed £100,000 from the bank.

Adam and Nicola ran out of money and missed deadlines but continued to do housework when they had time between tasks for the day.

At the time, Kevin said: “The exterior is a testament to Adam’s skill and dedication.”

But then added: “Adam and Nicola are far from moving in. It may not be over but it’s already almost tantalizing.”

The layout of the house is particularly unique and spans over four floors.

The former silver mine began with the lobby and kitchen on the ground floor.

Opposite the silver mine is a factory, which has been planned for conversion.

There is also a garden and lawn – perfect for a new owner with green fingers.

Kevin recently talked about how the design of homes is changing.

The house was introduced in the program in 2011
